Throughout the course, you will investigate the cultural, political, social and economic links between Scotland and the northern European and northern Atlantic regions.

In the first and second years, you will follow a traditional broad approach to the study of history from the medieval to the modern period. In years three and four you will have the opportunity to examine in-depth specific places, periods and themes which reflect the research specialisms of the expert staff at the university's Centre for History. Each year, you will build on your analytical and research abilities through a series of skills modules.
